Personal information collected through our websites and events

Results Direct collects a limited amount of personal information for our own legitimate interests, such as your name and email address, in response to contact requests through our websites, requests for product or service information, and registration for events where we sponsored or exhibited. This information is shared with trusted vendors that provide adequate protection of your personal information for the purpose of processing your requests and marketing our own products and services for which you’ve expressed interest. Personal data is retained in our backups for approximately one month after being removed in accordance with our data retention policies.

Results Direct remains responsible for any of your personal information that is shared under the Onward Transfer Principle with third parties for external processing on our behalf.

Accessing and updating your personal information

Whenever you use our services, we aim to provide you with access to your personal information. If that information is wrong, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or delete it – unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes.

You have the right to request access to your personal data, to rectify problems, have it erased, restrict or object to how it’s used and to obtain copies of information you provided to us. Please contact us regarding all matters of privacy and security with respect to your personal information.

Personal privacy inquiries

In compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles, Results Direct commits to resolve complaints about our collection or use of your personal information. Individuals with inquiries or complaints regarding our privacy policy should contact us first.

Results Direct is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC). We are also committed to cooperate with the panel established by the European Union (EU) data protection authorities (DPAs) with regard to unresolved Privacy Shield complaints concerning data transferred from the EU. You may also refer a complaint to your local data protection authority and we will work with them to resolve your concern.

In certain circumstances, the Privacy Shield Framework provides the right to invoke binding arbitration to resolve complaints not resolved by other means.

Cooperation with authorities and other lawful purposes

We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Results Direct if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:

- meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request;
- enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations;
- detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues; or
- protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Results Direct, our users or the public as required or permitted by law.
